Description

To win any of our great prizes, simply review the Christmas story summary below and then create a heart-warming story that brings all the emotion of loss, tragedy and Christmas spirit to life.

Linzie is 13 years old and lost her parents in a car accident  a few months previously. She was taken in by family members- the estranged sister of her mother but life feels empty. As Christmas approaches, it takes a very special event to make Linzie appreciate that Christmas can still be a very special time of year. 

Note: This competition is to create a story using the summary as inspiration. Maximum 1,600 words.
